Americas #2 Woodwind Quintet


IGNIS is an award winning ensemble committed to unlocking the expressive potential of the wind quintet medium by “taking what is an inherently unmatched ensemble and not trying to compensate for it.” Whether through the music of Mozart or music of the 21st century, IGNIS creates memorable, impactful performances by highlighting the “multi-layered, complex musical personalities” of its five members and celebrating the ways these distinct voices combine and interact. The ensemble was founded in 2021 as the University of Maryland’s sixth graduate fellowship woodwind quintet and served as the ensemble in residence at the 2022 Maine Chamber Music Seminar. During their fellowship at the University of Maryland, IGNIS was awarded first prize in the 2023 NOLA Chamberfest Emerging Artists competition and was a top prize winner at the 2023 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition.
